Book Review, Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh
This book has patterns covering several different themes
- Underwater Creatures
- Garden creatures
- Mythical creatures
My favorite is the octopus, but there’s a jellyfish, praying mantis, earthworm and even the Loch Ness monster and a desert favorite, the Jackalope. There’s a pattern for every skill level, and a helpful beginning section covering the techniques. Most of the patterns are also available on Ravelry, but the book is very affordable and available used.
